The Tyne Pedestrian & Cyclist Tunnels

Opened on 24th July 1951

Grade II listed

Used by 20,000 people per month (10,000 pedestrians and 10,000 cyclists) – contrast with vehicle tunnel which has 38,000 vpd

Equipment breakdowns becoming more frequent, more expensive to fix and more difficult to source parts

slide3
Owned by Tyne & Wear Integrated Transport Authority

Currently operated and maintained by TT2 as part of the New Tyne Crossing contract

Cycle tunnel is an important link to the National Cycle Network and the only fixed cycle crossing east of the Millennium Bridge

Options

The minimum – keep the tunnels open but with a reduced service (i.e. one tunnel, two lifts and no working escalators)

Investment - take this opportunity to give the tunnels a new lease of life and extend the possibilities for increased footfall

The Tyne Pedestrian & Cyclist Tunnels

slide5
To justify investment, TWITA would like to see more people make use of the tunnels

The purpose of this presentation is to:

raise awareness of the opportunities for the future of the tunnels

stimulate discussion about present and future possibilities

generate ideas

The Tyne Pedestrian & Cyclist Tunnels

slide6
Nothing will be ruled out at this stage!

Contributions will be gathered together in a report to go to TWITA in late March 2010

TWITA will then consider options and decide best way forward

Thinking so far

Fundamentals:

Improved signage and links with the Metro system and buses

Access – linked to national cycle network but could it be improved? What about pedestrians crossing roads?

Safety – lighting, staff visibility, CCTV, paving

Reliability – lifts and escalators continually breaking down

We need to know what’s important to you...

slide8
Thinking so far

Beyond fundamentals:

Branding and possible renaming

Sponsorship – The Halfords Tunnel?

Advertising

Health and exercise – developing the ‘Tyne Loop’

Art gallery

Concert venue

Retail/café development at the Tunnels’ entrances

slide9
Thinking so far

Organised runs and cycle races – the Tunnel Toddle?

60th Anniversary in 2011

What else?
